now it's time for the weather with ben rich. hello. the evenings have been getting darker and darker. we have been mocking of the days on the calendar. we are heading ever deeper into the autumn —— marking. on the weather is getting colder. you can see this blue shower —— shehzad our ami's see this blue shower —— shehzad our am i ‘s charts. quite a widespread ground frost on wednesday morning. through the day comes an area of low pressure moving on from the atlantic, bringing some outbreaks of rain. starting off with some sunshine, the odd mist patch around. certainly a cold start with one or two showers. but then from the west we bring in this band of showers initially. and then a band of more persistent rain pushing into wards the end of the day. temperatures a touch below where they should be at this time of year, ranging from six to ii this time of year, ranging from six to 11 degrees at best. as we had three wednesday night into thursday
we see this band of rain tracking in from the south—west. this band of rain will become quite slow—moving as this weather front just rain will become quite slow—moving as this weather frontjust hangs up across parts of england and wales as we get into thursday. an associate with a slow—moving, lumbering area of low pressure. you can see this band of heavy rain, could be enough to cause problems and localised flooding through east anglia, the midlands, north wales, potentially into northern england as well. to the south of that a mix of sunny spells and heavy showers. to the north, showers could be wintry of the highest ground in scotland. yes, the highest ground in scotland. yes, the air will be that goal. as we move out of those into friday, as this area of low pressure pushes eastwards, we could get back into a broadly north and north—easterly flow. so it's going to be cold once again. it will turn increasingly dry and bright, ithink, during friday was some spells of sunshine. as temperatures, for most of us, still languishing in single digits. with this clear skies overhead and relatively light winds it is going to turn really cold through friday
night. see the blue colours extending across the site. these temperatures, what we are expecting any town and city centres, out in the countryside we could get a few degrees lower than that. it could be some quite dense fog patches around to start the day as well. they bear that in mind if you have travel plans on saturday morning. and through the day we see another one of these frontal systems missing in from the atlantic. more outbreaks of rain bumping into the cold air could see wintry weather over the high ground of the pennines, the highest grounds of scotland as well. and the temperatures are still struggling. this area of low pressure again lumbers its way eastwards into the second half of the weekend. i think the wettest weather will tend to retreat eastwards as we move through sunday, so we will see more in the way of dry and bright conditions putting from the north and the west, still one or two showers, still wintry of the highest ground in the north and this temperatures ranging from 7— io north and this temperatures ranging from 7— 10 degrees. and as we head into next week, well, thejet stream remains to the south of the uk. that means we have got some rather chilly
air. when you see these dips in the jet stream, that is where we will develop areas of low pressure and it looks like an area of low pressure will become quite slow—moving across the near continent, feeding various lumps of the near continent, feeding various lu m ps of wet the near continent, feeding various lumps of wet weather from the east towards the west across the uk. there could be enough rain to cause some problems and some localised flooding. and it will often be quite windy. could is billy gowers times across the northern half of the uk. so certainly through next week it looks like staying rather chilly. spells of heavy rain at times and the chance of easterly gales. we are getting deeper into the autumn, but the weather might start to feel a bit like winter. hello. you are watching bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines: the welsh secretary, alun cairns, is accused of a cover—up after denying that he knew
about the role of one of his staff in the collapse of a rape trial. he is under pressure to resign. the rape victim is demanding his resignation. the lib dems launch their election campaign claim the uk would get a remain bonus of £50 billion pounds over five years if brexit was stopped. when i look at borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn, i am absolutely certain i could do a betterjob than either of them. cabinet ministerjacob rees—mogg apologises for suggesting that residents of grenfell tower should have used "common sense" and left the building, instead of listening to fire brigade. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are helen brand, chief executive of the association of chartered certified accountants and the political commentator and former labour party director of communications, lance price.
good to have you both with us. they've seen the papers. in case you haven't, here's an update. the front page of the metro leads with the rapper stormzy, who's calling forjacob rees—mogg to resign over comments he made about the grenfell tower fire. the ft has a story about a row between sajid javid and top civil servant, the cabinet secretary mark sedwill, after the chancellor was barred from releasing analysis showing the pricing of labour pledges. the prime minister, borisjohnson, launches the conservative party's general election campaign — on the front page of the telegraph. the mirror leads with the pilot of a new dna test for serious health conditions which it's hoped could save the lives of thousands of children. the guardian headlines the backlash overjacob rees—mogg's comments despite the cabinet minister issuing a "profound apology". the mail leads with the rmt strike which will affect trains across the south—western rail network throughout december. according to the times, the chinese government has put pressure on uk universities to curb
criticism of its regime. and the sun reports that the queen has gone fur—free, banning it from all her new outfits. we will definitely return to that one, both of you. let's start as we have 15 minutes, plenty of time to run through the papers. with the i newspaper, jacob rees—mogg. run through the papers. with the i newspaper, jacob rees-mogg. he probably doesn't want to be here, probably doesn't want to be here, probably some very ill chosen words about the grand mal disaster and tragedy. seeming to imply that he would have used common sense where others did not. causing greaterfans asa others did not. causing greaterfans as a result. and i think the question, what is being raised here is is he going to be let out anymore? there was already
increasing irritation with the level of his profile. when he's got a seriousjob he suddenly of his profile. when he's got a serious job he suddenly doesn't seem as funny as he used to. so... it's interesting, the role of the leader of commons, because there was a time many, of commons, because there was a time any of commons, because there was a time many, many moons ago when it was a very senior cabinetjob, to help out the prime minister and the leader of the prime minister and the leader of the commons. it's been reduced over the commons. it's been reduced over the years to a bit of a — i mean the statement on the thursday of the business has become a bit of knockabout. jacob rees—mogg is by no means the first to become a slightly comic turn. then suddenly they have to become a statesmanlike figure. it's a hard balance. the mother and it should be a serious job because jacob rees—mogg is one of two or three cabinet ministers who has to be across every aspect of government policy because he has to answer questions on thursday when he gives the statement for the business coming out ahead. normally it would
go to someone who is a pretty safe pairof hands go to someone who is a pretty safe pair of hands because therefore, if they have got that level of knowledge across the whole raft of government... 0h think of people like robbie cook and ann taylor. margaret beckett, that people like that. people you could put on the news channel wherever to put out the questions on anything at any time. they were grounded in the facts. jacob rees—mogg was my problem of —— jacob rees—mogg was my problem of —— jacob rees—mogg's problem is that it's his firstjob. part of his reason for being was to go a bit over the top and he was a campaigner. now he has to be restricted by government policy and he's not finding it very well. the ability to think on your feet in an interview and make sure not only do you come up with an interesting reply but also one that isn't going
to embarrass the government is something you have to learn and he hasn't learned it yet. he's got his fingers trapped in the door on this one. let's move on. helen, this is interesting, the lib dems had a big day today. one would have expected the guardian perhaps to give them a decent hearing on the front page. but it's not on the guardian front page, it is only on the i newspaper's front page. it was the launch of an election campaign, jo swinson is different from the other leaders. she has a very clear stance en brexit, which contrasts on the others in terms of the options people have before them. and we've looked, this is the only front page wherejo looked, this is the only front page where jo swinson appears. then there isn't a story. no, you have to look elsewhere for that. they've gone bigger onjacob rees—mogg. elsewhere for that. they've gone bigger on jacob rees-mogg. and the times has got two double page spread
about the lib dems, but quite a decent chunk of it is. a big piece about the lib dems ruling out a coalition and so for election stories it has a big photo ofjo swinson. what do you make of her pitch, lance, saying we are the remain party but we won't commit jeremy corbyn to be prime minister who was pledged to have a second referendum. and they are in the position where the tories are where you have effectively said to half of the electorate, we aren't interested in your vote. it is a bold strategy they have adopted. is one way of saying brave? it is brave, and it is bold. you can see why they are doing it. they do see this as a breakthrough moment and that's why they are disappointed not to be on they are disappointed not to be on the front page. devon .5% or so any
general election poll last time. they got hammered. -- 7.596. hammered in 2015, and again in 2017. the european election let them come through. this should be a huge opportunity for them. the labour party is looking both ways on brexit, so they are the one national party that is very clear, pro—eu, anti—brexit, if that is where you stand, a sort of ersatz referendum, they would be the remain party to go for. but it doesn't really seem to be working out that way. it's not working out quite as a brexit general election, we are only a few days into it. but other issues are coming out. i think her points are valid, it was the launch of their campaign, but it didn't have a story. if you are planning these things you have two measure things
out gradually, you need someone for your manifesto and your campaign lines. —— launch. there wasn't much to get people excited. so it's all very well to have a clear position and credit to them for that. a courageous and credit to them for that. a courageous opening, but you do also need to have to be interesting. they are interesting in the sense of the number of defections over the course of this parliament. as far as i can remember, i remember the 1997 parliament there were a lot of stories he went to the lib dems, but i don't remember the numbers we've seenin i don't remember the numbers we've seen in this parliament performer are labourmps, seen in this parliament performer are labour mps, change uk and stories going to the lib dems. —— in this parliament the number of labour mps. this is something jo swinson is going to sufferfrom, mps. this is something jo swinson is going to suffer from, the quentin let's piece is very patronising and leads on her hair and you just
cannot see that happening with the other leaders. no, even though boris johnson's air is an thusly fascinating. so she has a point about the sexism directed towards her. i hope that starts to dissipate, it will probably win her support, if anything, dissipate, it will probably win her support, ifanything, if dissipate, it will probably win her support, if anything, if it goes on too long. -- boris johnson's hehir is an thusly fascinating. we can a lwa ys is an thusly fascinating. we can always assume the cabinet won't be identical to the one we see in the picture at the moment. this story,, is about the conservatives who are hoping to use civil servant calculations as part of their campaign to criticise labour's spending pledges. but it's been stopped in its tracks? when you're close to a general election, the civil service are sort of aghast, they can't keep control of ministers at all in the way that they would
like to be able to do. this cabinet, it wasn't really a cabinet meeting at all. it's part of the election campaign, and boris johnson at all. it's part of the election campaign, and borisjohnson used it to make a pitch for votes in the way he is doing elsewhere. was interesting as i don't remember this happening before. it has happened before. it sort of stood out in a neat way. but cabinet is still government exercises, party exercises, expressing the limits of what is acceptable. and the party secretary has said to the chancellor, the government as a whole, we're not going to play your game of costing all of labour's promises in whatever speech it might or whatever. —— might be. that has happened in the past but it is usually a bit further away from a general election. they have said, we area general election. they have said, we are a neutral civil service, we are
going to play games for you. in the past it has always been part of the conservatives' tactics, criticising where the money is coming from. this time the tories are spraying money around, left, rightand time the tories are spraying money around, left, right and centre as well. investing in everything under the sun. it's a very unusual election. as a professional accountant, how do you approach this kind of numbers you see flying around in an election campaign? the bidding war? a lot of this comes back to trust. and they think people judge these things, ultimately, on do i trust the person saying it? what is the ethical dimension to this? why are people saying these things? so as a professional that is the first thing you talk about, rather than the detail of the numbers, have you applied an ethical approach to it?
how you approach it. that is interesting. as an outside eye would assume you start with the numbers. it is how you approach. then you can have transparency and an open conversation. sajid javid's approach, he said they wanted to look at trusts and whether they have been trustworthy with you, not the numbers. we could have been a trustworthy approach. we have lots of pundits now who do look at the numbers and say you can trust this... fiscal studies on people like that. and the office of budget responsibility. george osborne's innovation. if the figures came out from the government even with the civil service, people wouldn't really trust the figures anyway. they would recognise it was all part of the political... let us look at, the front of the guardian, steer clear of climate and energy as pledges, tories told.|j clear of climate and energy as pledges, tories told. i thought they had a ready made quite a few nhs
pledges can be prime minister has. it is interesting, because climate, and we haven't seen climate yet had lain -- and we haven't seen climate yet had lain —— headline in the election campaign, but it will deal to a very broad part of the electorate. here that the tory mps have been advised against signing up 20 pledges relating to climate, which is going to be difficult, because they think people will be wanting to know what's going to happen. it has become part of the social media thing. you get people to endorse an re—tweet or forward on thing. you get people to endorse an re—tweet orforward on facebook thing. you get people to endorse an re—tweet or forward on facebook or whatever. and like them and stuff, which effectively is an endorsement. it is perceived as that. to be fair, jeremy corbyn and the labour party did make climate a big part of the campaign launch yesterday. i think what this is about is not that the tories are not going to campaign on the climate of the hs, they certainly have been doing a lot of campaigning on the nhs, what they
don't want to do is to have people who may become ministers falling for what the lib dems fell for over the tuition fees, where an outside body ora campaign group tuition fees, where an outside body or a campaign group comes and says we wa nt or a campaign group comes and says we want you to sign this bit of paper that pledges you to do x, y, nz... a paper that pledges you to do x, y, nz. .. a photograph, paper that pledges you to do x, y, nz... a photograph, or paper that pledges you to do x, y, nz. .. a photograph, or to grow. you get a quick hit in the papers, if you're lucky, and then it is around your neck of the rest of the next parliament i think they want to avoid the particular risk. there will apparently be a cheat sheet. they are allowed to say they are in favour of shooting, apparently. anything that says hunting, shooting, and fishing. anything on the climate, the formative scientific government advisor was on the radio yesterday and said there had been a month on the approach to climate change of borisjohnson's government compared to theresa may's and certainly compared to david
cameron's, is that it was a lot less enthusiasm. at the david cameron had encouraged him to go out and say stuff on climate even though he was not prepared to make speeches on. theresa may and borisjohnson were especially reluctant, and boris johnson as foreign secretary was relu cta nt to johnson as foreign secretary was reluctant to talk about climate change. it is interesting someone of his credibility talking so openly about the business of government. indeed. the generational issue is absolutely crucial. an awful lot of young people, ithink, are probably registering to vote, very close to the election, their votes will count. they are considered to be more pro—remain, pro—eu. in the climate is a really, really, really big issue for them, which is i think one of the reasons they put it so high up on their list of priorities yesterday. so by appearing to be equivocal on climate change, i think the tories are running a really big risk. we have only limited time. we talked in the last hour about her
majesty no more, there were lovely pictures in the mail, you will have to go and buy the mail tomorrow will see it online. a fabulous collection of furs, the queen will not buy any new furs, but it also she has plenty to choose from. we will end, helen, with the story about another prominent woman, states woman, theresa may, who has a new role she is coming out for herself. yes. inspirational speaker. signing up with the washington speakers bureau, which a number of former prime minister '5 have signed up for, apparently. it's actually... ever been seen as her forte, that inspirational public speaking. most of the speeches that people remember are the ones where things went radically wrong. when she lost her voice and the backing fell down. radically wrong. when she lost her voice and the backing fell downlj suppose the inspirational thing is that she kept going. and being that... an inspirational woman. has
she been an inspirational speaker the 2015 general election made of gone very the 2015 general election made of gone very different and we might not even be having one now. very intriguing. it is worth remembering she once said that those who were sisters of everywhere are sisters of nowhere. she might find that becomes a bit ofa nowhere. she might find that becomes a bit of a problem for herself. lance price and helen brand thank you very much. my hope we will see you very much. my hope we will see you before the end of the election campaign. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, helen brand and lance price. goodbye.
good evening. here's your latest sports news. we will start with the most remarkable night at stamford bridge in the champions league this evening. at one stage chelsea were 4—1 down in their tie against ajax. but momentum swung in the second half, when the visitors had two men sent off, chelsea fought back, levelled it at 4—11 and at one stage. they thought they had won it. our reporter rhia chohan had the tricky task of condensing it all for us. under the lights of stamford bridge, chelsea had the chance to go three points clear ajax in their group, but it started badly. the faintest of touches and tammy abraham put his side behind afterjust two minutes. and it looked to be getting much worse, when hakim ziyech hit this beauty they went three our thanks, in most part, to kepa arrizabalaga. if you thought the first half was frantic, it wasn't a patch on the
second, chelsea 11—2 down, ajax had two men sent off with second yellows. any momentum turned. rees jones headlines: on the bounce to level, sending stamford bridge into a frenzy. what could have been an amazing bounce back when for chelsea was not to be. cesar azpilicueta's goal ruled out for a handball from tammy abraham. this tournament delivers. ajax left stamford bridge with a point. rhia chohan, bbc news. far more straightforward for liverpool — the defending champions beating genk 2—1 at anfield to top their group. craig templeton watched this one for us. it's ref or a european on field not to be the biggest one that week. they had an ion manchester city on sunday. jurgen klopp insisted it was for fresh sunday. jurgen klopp insisted it was forfresh ideas sunday. jurgen klopp insisted it was for fresh ideas and fresh legs. but it was two old hands who made the opening goal. 1—0. they continued to
create an mozela was just inches away from making it two, but those missed chances sparked genk into life. and mbwana samatta was second for heading the equaliser. liverpool said —— started the second half reinvigorated. as oxlade—chamberlain scored twice in belgium and with a pivot on strike he had done it again. genk look to level the scores was more, but this time he was there to make this a. and that was how it finished, farfrom to make this a. and that was how it finished, far from flawless, to make this a. and that was how it finished, farfrom flawless, but they are top of the group and can now put both eyes on the weekend. craig templeton, bbc news. arsenal manager unai emery has confirmed that switzerland international granit xhaka has been stripped of the club captaincy. the midfielder has not played for the club since he was booed off by fans, and reacted angrily, after being substituted against crystal palace on the 27th of october. xhaka is said to have "accepted the position". pierre emerick aubamayang will take over as club captain. saracens have been docked 35 points
and handed a five million pound fine for breaching salary cap regulations. an independent panel had found wrongdoing relating to business partnerships between the owner nigel wray and some of the club's top players. premiership rugby has suspended the punishment pending a saracens appeal. former saracens player kyren bracken believes people should wait for more details on the case — before passing judgement everyone wants to be seen to be doing the right thing and playing within the rules, and if saracens have not been playing within the rules, then i would say throw the book at them. but i cannot see how they have when the panel actually said that they haven't intentionally tried to do anything. so i think we need to have to have a massive, full investigation what actually happened. staying with rugby, the victorious south africa team have landed on home soil after winning the world cup injapan. this is them coming through arrivals. captain siya kolisi raising the william webb—ellis trophy aloft to hundreds of fans welcoming them home.
it's the first time they've won the trophy since 2007. that's all the sport for now. hello there. the rest of this week are staying on the cold side. temperatures a few degrees below the they should before the time of year. we have been watching this cold arctic as slowly springs up as across the uk of the last 2a hours. you can see here on the ms chart and the colours can be cold there will be sticking around for the rest of this week and into the weekend. we start wednesday on a chilly note with frost around, this rate was sunshine. one or two she was peppering the eastern coast. we will have this band of cells across the eastern coast. there will be longer spells of rain for a bit of winteriness of the high ground. a dry slide between the next band of rain was will be moving in later in the day for northern ireland, part of us, in this office. anywhere you are it will feel chilly on
wednesday, 6— 10 degrees in the south. wednesday night looks pretty wet. we have that first band of rain. this, pushing northwards. they will end up merging together across central parts of the uk. there will be winteriness of the high ground. ostroushko is following on across the south—west. because ms more cloud, breeze, and unrein around i don't think it will be quite as cold to start this day. but it is looking fairly atrocious on thursday with this area of low pressure pot on top of the uk and its associated weather front. it looks like it could be very wet in places, particularly through central portions of the uk. a bit of uncertainty to was northern and southern extents, but it looks like it's and southern extents, but it looks like its eastern, central parts of the uk, cross into northern ireland which will be the brunt of the screen. could see some localised flooding leading to travel disruption. to the north of it, sunshine, showers on the hills, blustery heavy showers. you notice temperatures, single digits for most. through thursday night, a gradual improvement is that area of low pressure in this weather fronts slowly goes away. for friday, a hang
back with reason rain in the south—east. it eventually will clear and after a cold start most places on friday should see very pleasant conditions. a lot of sunshine around, although it will still be chilly. probably the best day of the week. it's a short lives fine spell because the next area of low moves injust in time for because the next area of low moves in just in time for the weekend to bring some pretty wet weather on saturday, but again as a subsoil south—east with it is an improvement on sunday. the rain will be heavy and persistent in places, sleet and snow for the higher ground again across the north, it is a slow improvement on sunday.
